A Real Dragon
Ty is celebrating his three-and-a-half birthday, and he has a single wish: to see a real dragon. His parents and brother and sister are dumbfounded —how can they grant him this wish? But the willow tree knows — it takes the children to Komodo Island in Indonesia where they meet not only a real dragon but three of the real dragon's children. The dragons and the Willowbees learn a great deal about each other and realize that the stories don't always match up with the truth.
